Sammanfattning (abstract):
Musculoskeletal pain problems are common among office workers and have been an important issue over the years. Whether these are caused or just aggravated from poor postures and inappropriately adjusted work-stati ons, the issue conti nues to be a challenge to staff, employers and ergonomists. In this brief review and overview of some important aspects of these problems, the authors give hands-on suggesti ons on how to organize, monitor and address some of the aggravating factors. It is our sincere hope that this arti cle will provide arguments based on scientific evidence for our many field ergonomists that struggle to convince managers to buy ergonomically-adequate equipment, and to make sure the equipment is well adjusted for each individual worker. The role of the ergonomist is conti- nuously changing with our technological advances, but to be effective this has to include direct worker participation.
